Had the pleasure of attending Penny Arcade’s event Pax east at the World Trade Center in Boston this past weekend. For those of you who don’t know Pax is a very popular event among those who love computer & console gaming. Here’s a link to get more detailed info about the history & magical fun of this event. There was so much to see & do that I’ll need to put up more than one post to cover it all. I’ve decided to begin with some snapshots of great booth imagery.
The FireFall booth was pretty amazing & the cosplay on display here was well done! These costumes were quite detailed & the characters were pretty funny!

The Borderlands 2 booth was also pretty impressive. The story line description taken from Borderlands says:
Borderlands 2 follows the story of four new Vault Hunters as they fight to free Pandora from the clutches of Handsome Jack, the brilliant, charismatic, and utterly despicable CEO of the Hyperion Corporation.
Players will fight across the whole of Pandora to stop Jack from awakening an ancient alien evil known only as “the Warrior.” Their quest will bring them into contact with some familiar faces from the old game – most notably, the original four Vault Hunters: Roland, Lilith, Brick and Mordecai. They, along with some brand new characters, will help players defeat Jack, destroy the Warrior, and save Pandora.

The Dungeons & Dragons Booth was also terrific! The amount of detail in the booth statues was staggering! For more info on this classic gaming hit head on over to Wizards of the Coast & yes, you can now play online!
I can’t possibly describe all that I got to see in one post!
